. some crack downs are violations of the law. some are declared guilty, falsely, and are forced to confess on state-run television. that makes people confused and thinking what is the president's the. >> it's unlikely the new president will loosen control over the media. we can see this from what was put forward after he assumed presidency. if you look at the members in the politburo, some of them used to be propaganda officials, and they are not famous for being the most liberal propaganda officials. >> the leader of the party, people pin high hope on xi jinping, and the tone has changed a little. i don't see at the moment that xi jinping will change the media or press. maybe he is tightening his control. in that he nings ideology is important to his party. >> policing what is said and spread on sina weibo is not easy. weibo has 500 million users, all in china, twice as map as twitter. last -- many as twitter had. a private run paper says the government has an army of 2 million people patrolling the net. public opinion analysts employed by the communist party. they are the rumo

of people just as well as certain law changes like delaying the employer mandate, but keeping the individual mandate on the books when it comes to the president's health care law. i think people are paying more attention. they have more access to more varied view points on what's happening in washington, and they learn too many of our lawmakers are not representing the interests of the american people well, but their own interests and interest of well connected groups in washington. i think that's another reason why people are increasingly distrusting their government looking for somebody who will represent their views. i think they are looking for principled leadership, and i think we saw some of that with the shutdown where some lawmakers stood for principle, know the law is bad, and we -- lawmakers, they didn't vote for it. it was passed on a purely partisan basis, and the house has the constitutional right to deny funding to laws like that, and an attempt to do that was important to show that lawmakers act on principle at times and in the best interest of the nation. >> our next question
